Steps We Follow to Fight Domestic Violence False Accusations?

Making false allegations of domestic violence is a new tactical weapon many women or men use because once the accusations are made, the defendant is typically presumed guilty.

Before the accused does anything else, he or she needs to hire an attorney. The case in proving innocence is a difficult one, and the sooner you starts the legal defense, the greater chances are to succeed.

Step 2: Abide by all the Terms and Conditions of Restraining Order

If there is a restraining order against you, be sure to strictly abide by all the terms and conditions.

If the other party ever contacts you claiming that they “need” to see you, then keep a written log of all their attempts. This will prove to the court that the accuser doesn’t believe that they are in any real danger. At the same time DO NOT respond to, or meet with the accuser.

STEP 3: Remain Persistent and Stay your Ground

If you are innocent be sure to remain persistent and stay your ground. It is also best to keep yourself cool and remain calm and professional throughout the case. Try not to get angry because the other party will be looking and anticipating that reaction. Remember that the accuser is in fact breaking the law. Making false allegations in court can be perceived as perjury and if you prove your innocence they could face legal implications.

Step 4: Providing Evidence and Calling Witnesses
